Whether you can barely reach your toes or you do handstands in your backyard, you will find the practice of yoga and the Tadasana.Yoga community to be welcoming and accessible. Here are some answers to questions we get a lot.
1. What do I need if I’m brand new to yoga?
The only thing you need is an open mind. The practice of yoga is so beneficial to both your physical body and your emotional state, that physicians and therapists are regularly recommending it to their patients. You do not need to have any flexibility, strength or endurance to take a class – we work with you right where you are today. Every class is intended for all levels. The first few times you’ll need to watch others to learn some of the movements but very quickly it will become second nature. Give yourself at least three classes before you make a judgement about yoga or your own results. New things take time to sink in. We practice Power Vinyasa, a hatha-based, flowing practice that challenges your body, mind, and spirit so you can get to complete health. Learn more about our classes here.
2. Do you offer a beginner’s class?
All classes are intended for all levels. The first few times, you’ll watch others as you learn how the moves work. Soon you’ll be flowing right along with the community! We do offer some Slow Flow and Restorative classes which are designed to slow things down for everyone and can be a good place to start if you’re brand new, but don’t hesitate to jump right in to any class on the schedule. Our teachers are trained to help new and advanced practitioners. And everyone is here to improve their own practice, not to watch how others are doing.
3. Do you offer mats and towels for rent?
On your first visit to us and for locals trying for the first time, mat rental, towel rental, and a water bottle are included. After that, you can rent or purchase mats, towels, and water. We also have a bottle-filler in the studio. All rental equipment is sterilized after use. Use at your own risk.
4. What temperature is the room?
We heat the room to around body temperature to make it easier for your muscles to warm up. Our studios are large, with high ceilings, and we live in a very dry climate. As a result, the rooms will be warm, but can vary greatly. It will feel cooler in the winter, next to the windows, and in the early morning. It will feel warmer in full classes and during summer months.
5. Do I need to sign up in advance?
While it isn’t required, you do earn Sweat Points if you register for a class in advance. Make use of the Tadasana app for Apple or Android to manage your personal class schedule. Please plan to come to the studio at least 15 minutes before class begins to complete our waiver and get ready for class.
6. How much does it cost?
The price varies by location. Please check out our pass options here.
7. Do you have showers?
Our Park City studio has changing rooms, but no showers.
8. What is the minimum age? Do you offer yoga for kids?
None of our locations are licensed as childcare facilities. As a result, children may not wait in the lobby (no matter how well-behaved) during a class. If your child is mature enough to attend a class, practice with you, and stay in the room, they are welcome to join. They must register and pay as a student to do so. We find that our classes are best for children ages 10 and up. We occasionally offer Mommy & Me classes designed for very young ones. Please look on our schedule for those class opportunities.
